Spring Salad with Flaxseed Oil Vinaigrette


http://schneiderchen.de | © 2017 | http://angiesrecipes.blogspot.com




Now that spring is in full swing and one of my favourite ways to enjoy all the spring produce is in fresh salads. This is a very simple yet delicious vegan springtime salad with tender lollo bionda, chickpeas, white asparagus tips, pine nuts and fresh berries tossed in a flaxseed oil dressing.

SaladFlaxseed Oil Dressing
  • 1/2 head Lollo bionda / leaf lettuce, chopped
  • 150 g Chickpeas, cooked and drained
  • 10 Strawberries, trimmed and halved
  • 50 g Blueberries
  • 50 g Raspberries
  • 12 White asparagus tips
  • A handful pine nuts, dry toasted
  • Basil
  • 60 ml Flaxseed oil
  • Freshly pressed juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 tbsp Maple syrup
  • 1 clove Garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tsp Dijon mustard
  • Tri-colour peppercorns, freshly milled
  • Sea salt
  1. Place all the ingredients for the dressing in a glass jar, close the lid and shake vigorously to mix well. Either use immediately or store it in the fridge until ready to use. Keeps for up to 1 week. Shake well before using.
  2. Place chopped lollo bionda leaves in two serving bowls. Add in cooked chickpeas and berries. Arrange the white asparagus tips on top and sprinkle the toasted pine nuts over. Garnish with basil leaves.
  3. Drizzle enough of the dressing over and gently toss to combine. Serve!

You've reminded me that sometimes a good salad, fresh season produce, is all you need for a good meal. I'm also curious about flaxseed oil since I haven't tried it.

Eva Taylor 27/5/17 22:14

I used to buy flaxseed oil all the time, but I haven't for ages, thanks for the reminder! I had to look up lollo bionda. The white asparagus tips look amazing. I am off using pine nuts because they have become so ridiculously expensive and the more affordable ones are imported from China and many people have had adverse reactions to eating them, changing the taste of food for months afterward.
